Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

School starts on Monday for Kate and Briggs. It seems like yesterday they were in kindergarten, and now they’ll be roaming the halls as seventh graders.  I know that time doesn’t speed up or take a pause. But there are moments when I doubt that truth!

On to this week’s reading pile.

  • These people who work from home have a secret: They have two jobs. (WSJ)
  • Why some companies are waging war on meetings to tackle burnout. (Digiday)
